3.3. NEON technology

NEON technology is a media and signal processing architecture that adds instructions targeted primarily at audio, video, 3-D graphics, image, and speech processing. Advanced Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) instructions are available in both ARM and Thumb states.

NEON technology includes both Advanced Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) instructions and the ARM VFPv3 instructions.

See the ARM Architecture Reference Manual for details of the NEON technology.

See the Cortex-A9 NEON Media Processing Engine Technical Reference Manual for implementation-specific information.
